Officers also seized 70 packages of suspected fentanyl/heroin, methamphetamine, crack, powdered cocaine, and an undisclosed amount of cash.

“Our investigators were at the right place and were able to establish grounds on the fly for an arrest which was successful in hampering this suspect’s busy drug trafficking operations,” said Cpl. March in a statement.

Charges against them may include several counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking.

The two suspects are expected to appear in Duncan Supreme Court on January 7th, 2020.
